Default 04 VDP won't start when very cold

Hi all, I have a 2004 VDP that has about 54000 miles on it. I have had it since 2006, with 6500 miles, and love the car. One problem that has been driving me crazy, however, is that whenever the outside temperature is below 25 degrees fahrenheit, the car will crank and crank, but will not start. This has been happening for two winters and I have had the car towed at least four times to the dealer and independent garages and by the time they get to look at it, the temperature has warmed up and the car starts right up. This past week, when it was 16, 18 and 25 degrees, the car wouldn't start. Yesterday, when it was 36, it started right up. Does anyone have any ideas or has anyone else had this problem? thanks. John
